About the home fragrance 'Love'
Explore the invisible world! Although we usually see the beauty of the world with our eyes, try to imagine that you have never seen the sea, the sun, the meadows - everything you can see in the world the most beautiful…
The main notes of the scent "Love" - apple, black currant, blue plum, bamboo and cloves - will fill your home with coziness and warmth.
The package contains a glass bottle with a home scent and five sticks which one of it comes with a felt of wool that will help the scent to spread more intensively and stay in the premises even longer. The scent label is also printed in Braille and inside the package is a description of the project and the tale according to which the scent was created.
The package also contains information about the history of scent creation and the interactive fairy tale book 'Close your eyes', which can be read with different senses: sight, touch, hearing and smell.
Vytas Palavinskas created an exclusive packaging and label design for home fragrances, supporting the social idea of the project.

The scents were created by a duo of unsighted girl Saulė Kupryte and perfumer Aistis Mickevicius
The scent for the house 'Love' was created by a visually impaired girl Saulė Kuprytė (13 y.o.) The creator of the scent Saule likes to spend her free time with a book, likes to draw and sing. She has won many awards by participating in Braille reading competitions. Growing up, Saule wants to create books and be a Braille proofreader.
The girl created the home scent 'Love' by participating in the project 'Invisible World of Scents'. This is a scent project, in which four unsighted children and young people, together with scent creator Aistis Mickevicius created home scents in the creative workshops of FUMparFUM based on fairy tales created by other Lithuanian children.
The idea of home scents was inspired by fairy tales
The scent "Love" is based on the fairy tale 'Boruze Uze' from the book 'Close your eyes', which is intended for sighted and blind children. Saule Kupryte chose an apple as the main note of the fragrance 'Love', as it is called the fruit of love, and the main heroes of the fairy tale - ladybird and cucumber - communicated beautifully, despite the differences and the disability of one of them.
This book published in both: sighted and Braille. It has been adapted to be read with four senses: sight, touch, hearing, and smell. The authors of the fairy tales in this book are sighted children who took part in the national fairy tale creation competition "How I See the World with Eyes Closed". The four tales in this book also have their own scents created by the unsighted. Therefore, when reading these stories in the book, you can also find the smell assigned to the fairy tale and integrated into the page under a special sticker.
The scent for the house 'Love' was created in order to spread the scents of the fairy tail not only in the pages of the book but also at home.
Emotional and social effects of home fragrance
Home scents not only give coziness to home spaces, it can also provide relaxation or just provide energy as well as evoke our memories, joy and other positive emotions.
Egle Jokuzyte, the founder of the “Dot Story” brand, continued the previous project “Invisible Scent World”, during which home scents were born, while implementing the social project “I See the World with Closed Eyes”, which inspired the idea to publish the book 'Close your eyes'. Egle Jokuzyte develops the creativity of blind children and youth with her initiatives. Her projects also encourage people to contribute to the joy of reading books for the blind and sighted, which is enriched by experiences of different sensations.
Everyone who buys a scent created by blind children contributes to the reduction of books donated to the blind and the cultural exclusion of these people.
Home scents created for unsighted children can be a great business gift for those looking for meaningful and socially valuable souvenirs.
